It makes a huge difference. On one wall of the Two Bear Air hangar is a sectional chart that is littered with push pins from the Canadian border to Idaho and all the way to Yellowstone National Park. Each pin represents a rescue in the relatively short history of the Two Bear operation. Pierce has been working with other sheriff departments outside of the Flathead Valley as well, to encourage them to utilize Two Bear’s unique assets at no cost to their department. That word is slowly getting


out, but there is more work to do. “If we’re the best tool, the best resource to help, we will go there,” Pierce says. With greater than a 350 nautical-mile range, they can take the aircraft where it is needed in their immediate vicinity. “We’re just there to assist the operation and help get that person out of a bad situation.”


That still leaves entire areas of wilderness and outdoor adventure uncovered by aerial search and rescue. While they have no


intentions to expand to other locations, the team members are hopeful that they have paved the way for others to replicate what they are doing. “We always thought that if anybody else could do this, we would come in right alongside them and help them set up the exact same program.” Imitation is the best form of flattery for Pierce and his team. “We’ll know we have really made it when someone else does exactly what we’re doing.”


What they are doing is saving lives, one mission at a time.
